Amazon’s Hanna to stream pilot for 24 hours on Superbowl Sunday


Amazon is doing it up big for Superbowl Sunday by premiering the first episode of their next drama series, Hanna. But there’s a catch–it’ll only be available for 24 hours.

Some may recall the 2011 movie, Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan and Eric Bana and made by Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice). Fast forward about 8 years, and Amazon Video is all set to premiere the small-screen adaptation of the movie. Although the series does not premiere until March, Amazon Video will be airing the first episode for 24 hours following Superbowl Sunday, per Deadline.

This announcement comes following the Hanna trailer that will air during the third quarter of the big game on Sunday. Amazon is really going all out, aren’t they? In May of 2017, the drama thriller was given a straight-to-series order. Viewers may be excited to hear that the series version of Hanna will star Joel Kinnaman (Altered Carbon) and Mireille Enos (World War Z), both of whom starred in The Killing.

The character of Hanna is being played by Esme Creed-Miles who will basically play a badass woman that has spent her entire life fighting people. What makes this more exciting is that Kinnaman plays her father, Erik, and if you’ve seen Kinnaman’s past work, you know this series is going to be full of epic fights. Things get interesting when she is separated from her father due to a CIA agent named Marissa (Enos).

The drama thriller will certainly have us all on the edge of our seats as we watch Hanna try to seek her father while taking down anyone in her way. Given how she was raised, the journey will be a complicated one for Hanna, which always makes for amazing television.
